    One thing you guys are missing here: Robert Edward Lee is NOT a good name for a car, but the "General Lee" just sort of rolls off the tongue. ;-)

    General Lee Dodge Charger vs. Sherman Tank. Hmmm... I still got 5 bucks on those Duke boys.

    Actually, there was an honest to good Lee tank.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M3_Lee

    It was not as effective as the Sherman tank. But, the Sherman tank was outclassed by the German's Panther and Tiger Tanks, although the Sherman was easy to produce in large numbers and easy to maintain on the battlefield, which were shortcomings with the German tanks.

    The Dukes of Hazzard was a seriously mindless show. Harmless, and I do recall an actress in skimpy clothes, but seriously mindless.

    Only good thing in the show was Catherine Bach in shorts.

    So easy for people to become offended these days. Especially by a statue. Unreal.

    I tell you what, let's erect a statue of Saddam Hussein in your town square and see how you feel about it.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    And jumping Dodge Chargers over bridges that just happened to be "out." I think Hazard county had more bridges than Venice. And they were always "out" because low taxes = bad policy. :)
